Question about Symantec Norton AntiVirus 2009 - 3 User Edition & Save & Restore 2.0

1 Answer

My norton 'all-in-one security' 2009 will not run a quick scan - it appears to be scanning but the message at bottom of screen informing me how many files, etc, have been scanned just stays at zero - although it seems to be working in ''real time''. This problem began after i ran quick scan a few days ago and, as it did not appear to be scanning at all i cancelled the scan after an hour (quick scan normally takes a few minutes) and ever since i have had the problem. I uninstalled the programme and reinstalled it using the original product disc but the problem persists.Any ideas?My laptop has Windows Vista Basic.

Windows Vista has a very decent firewall. Better than norton. The only way to contact a virus is by inviting that virus onto your PC. You would do this by downloading an unknown file from an un-reliable source on the internet i.e nasty **** stuff which claims to be free. Norton Internet security is a rip off. Your machine will run better & just as secure without it. The world needs to wake up to the computer virus conspiracy. For personal computers AV software is pointless.

I think you are having the problem with schedule scanning

Create a new task in Control panel and add the Nav file to the scan and schedule the time

If you are unable to run the Quick scan or comprehensive scan
Download and run the free upgrade Norton Anti virus 2010
you can activate Nav10 with your existing product key

I keep getting my computer locked up and the message I am getting is: Norton Antiviris is performing a background task: Full system scan in progress! But it locks my computer up for hours?


scan your computer with malwarebytes, then restart and scan with spybot search and destroy.

SPEAKING WITH MY EXPERIENCE: Either try Security Essentials from Microsoft OR Avast. There’s free software out there to try.

Helpful Free Software below Read On.

FREE SPYWARE
Download Spybot Search & Destroy. Restart computer, then run Spybot to see what spyware comes up, AND DELET IT.

FYI---Virus Protection-- 2 programs of virus protection will conflict with each other and will actually cancel out the protection. SO just download one.

Running Spybot Search & Destroy with EITHER Avast or Avg (great Free virus protection programs ) will keep a computer in good working condition. FREE

HERE ARE SOME LINKS, THAT WOULD BE BETTER:

Avira AntiVir
http://www.free-av.com/

NEW *****Somthing new FROM MICROSOFT.*** 2009 ---Security Essentials
http://www.microsoft.com

Pop up Blocker ** free******
www.panicware.com


*****Spybot - Search & Destroy 1.5.2 ****
FREE SPYWARE
http://www.download.com/Spybot-Search-De…

****Avast ***FREE ANTI VIRUS PROGRAM
http://www.avast.com/eng/home-registrati…

****AVG ****FREE SPYWARE PROGRAM
http://www.free.avg.com

**Ccleaner*** FREE
http://www.download.com/3120-20_4.html?q…

***Malware**** FREE
http://www.malwarebytes.org/.

$ *** KASPERSKY ***
http://www.kaspersky.com

There are alot of $ anti-virus and Internet security programs out there,

ie: Norton, McAfee, Panda, Bitdefender. If you would like to pay $ then get ***Kaspersky***-- 2010 ,

I feel that is the best for your money.

REMEMBER TO KEEP UP THE DAILY MAINTENANCE ON ALL OF YOUR COMPUTERS.!

Good Luck. If you think this is good information, , please rate me.

Full system scan not getting completed


Open NIS and run LiveUpdate. Keep re-running LiveUpdate until it says that there are no more updates. Reboot the system if prompted to do so (you may want to reboot even if it doesn't say it is required, just to be sure everything got replaced properly). Open NIS again, select Tasks and run a Full System Scan. The error message should not appear again.

Which is best internet security suite


Norton Internet Security 2009 is an all around good choice. The 2009 version stays idle until your computer goes idle then it kicks in doing the security scans, etc. For a few dollars more you can get Norton 360 which does your Internet security as well as routine PC maintenance.
